Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Few things are sweeter than a child’s early poems: simple, touching, and at times more insightful than expected. And since children often know best how to capture the interest and imagination of other children, an educational picture book filled with kids’ poems just might bring rote learning to life. Such is the case with C is for Colorado."
  ———Diane Gardner, ForeWord Review

"O Is for Oregon is an alphabetical treat of poetry for little eyes, ears, and hands.This 30-page book has one letter of the alphabet on each page as well as an accompanying poem written by an elementary grade student. The poems are very simple rhymes that try to connect the letter of the alphabet with something from the state of Oregon.The last three pages of the book give basic facts about all of the topics referred to in the poems. For instance, "Z is for Zoo" has a cute poem accompanying it on the page. In the back of the book, you will read that the Oregon Zoo is the home of the largest and oldest Asian elephant born in a zoo in North America.O Is for Oregon ends with a group picture of the students who participated in making the book. I thought that was a nice finishing touch. Overall, this is a fun book that can help children learn the alphabet and a little state history at the same time."
